JHS MID-TERM: There is no regulation that states that schools should go on a c compulsory break- GNACOPS to GES
The Ghana National Council of Private Schools (GNACOPS) has indicated that there is no regulation that bounds a school to go on a mid-term break following threats issued by some officials of the Ghana Education Service.
According to a memo issued by the GNACOPS, some officers from GES are going round telling some private schools to go on compulsory mid-term, else, they will close down their schools.
The council has however countered the activities of the GES officials by indicating that its member schools that they should not be perturbed by such intimidation and harassment, because there is no regulation that states that schools should compulsory go on mid-term.
“GNACOPS wishes to inform all member schools that they should not be perturbed by such intimidation and harassment because there is no regulation that states that schools should compulsorily go on mid-term”, the statement added.
According to the GNACOPS, the decision to go on mid-term depends on individual schools and how to run their academic calendar. However, it has urged its members that any school willing to stay throughout the term for some reasons can go ahead but should not allow other people to disrupt your operations.
